Five on Friday: Valentine's Day Edition

Somebody discovered today the secret of the Heart bokeh

(psst...here's a tutorial on making your own heart shaped bokeh.)

Something I am (perhaps insanely) trying to do this year is handcraft as many gifts as I can. I know this isn't always going to be possible. I'm thinking of my nephews here, ages 3-9, who will probably not appreciate  the time and effort that went into NeeNee (that's me) making them a knitted hat. But time and skill level will probably also be a factor in not accomplishing this goal 100%. Still, I'm willing to give it the old college try.

Here are some easy, inexpensive, and super cute things that you can make for your Valentine, just in case you need a little inspiration!

I ♥ these framed heart maps of special places you and your honey have been.
Red velvet crepes are a perfect way to start AND finish the day. I'll have mine with strawberries on the side, please.
These DIY Valentine's Day cards made from free paint color swatches!
This felted heart patch sweater is calling my name.

Have a fantastic weekend!
Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Cute ideas! A thought on the sharpie/teacup idea... At Starbucks we obviously use a lot of sharpies and they come off pretty easily so it wouldn't last very long, especially with washing. We have "for here" serveware that's just plain white, and I often jot little notes on them for customers using a wet-erase marker. It's cute and it washes off!


Hello! It's nice to hear from you and I will always try to reply to you here in the comments section! :0)
